A woman from Willenhall has been jailed after playing an Ed Sheeran song at top volume over and over again.
Sonia Bryce played the number one hit ‘Shape of You’ repeatedly and caused a “wholly unacceptable level of disturbance” according to a judge.
Her landlords, Walsall Housing Group Ltd, secured a court order barring her from creating a nuisance or annoyance.
The Walsall resident had been repeatedly arrested for breaching that injunction and was handed a six-week sentence last December.
After playing the same Ed Sheeran ballad on a loop for about half an hour and receiving complaints from a neighbour, she was back in court.
The judge gave her an 8 week jail sentence and told the mother of three:
“You must learn that you should behave as a reasonable and responsible adult and not make life for your neighbours the misery that you have”.
There are consequences to all of your actions. One second you’re jamming out to Ed Sheeran and the next thing you know, you’re in handcuffs and locked up in jail for 8 weeks. I assume this just happens anytime you decide to play Ed Sheeran under any circumstance.
After listening to his new album, I totally understand why a judge basically said ‘I don’t care if you’re a mother of three. You NEED to be imprisoned for liking this garbage. Your kids are better off without you’. I’m not sure that was his exact quote but I think I’m pretty close.
Poor Sonia Bryce’s kids. Now they’re going to hate that red headed weirdo for inadvertently getting their mother arrested. I’m pretty sure that’s the plot of Kill Bill 3.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think anyone who loves Ed Sheeran should be in prison forever. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
